I'm feeling confused at the moment and although I know I probably sound really dumb, here goes anyway...
I'm not yet entirely sure what I have as doctors keep testing and not diagnosing but it's most probably some form of inflammatory arthritis ( sero -negative). I have been on holiday for two weeks and could really relax and rest lots so felt really well this weekend wondering if the MRI scheduled for yesterday would show up anything as I didn't hurt at all.
During the procedure they imaged both my feet and my pelvis and lower back, nothing else although I have had more symptoms in my hands and elbows and lately my knees. But I guess it's probably expensive and the doctor had to make a decision about it ages ago when he referred me.
It was hard to keep lying still for the approximately 1.5 hours I was there as my body seemed to want to twitch and spasm but I made it. It felt fine and the worst was the stiffness getting up after lying flat for that time. By that time my knees and elbow were hurting and I was quietly annoyed that I couldn't have them done instead... I felt ok after some time moving around though.
This morning however my whole body aches as if put through a mill. I can only describe it as a feeling similar to muscle soreness after a workout but it's in my bones more than muscles?! My neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands, knees, feet, almost everything just feels sore and achy and I walk around gingerly thinking this can't be from the MRI, it's only a magnetic field... But I felt fine before and for almost two weeks had hardly any symptoms. Has anybody got any idea what this could be, please? Xxx
